Down payments are the largest barrier to homeownership, but HomeNow has been helping Montanans overcome this hurdle by helping out with their down payment. For one home buyer in Butte, a new home also meant a new job, and the flexibility she needed as a single mother:
“I’m a young single mother with hopes of breaking the cycle of poverty. I couldn’t afford daycare but it was entirely impossible to work part-time or stay at home. I wanted to open an in-home daycare to solve these problems but I needed to own a home to do it. I didn’t have enough in savings and I couldn’t find a way to save enough money for it considering my circumstances. HomeNow was the key and solved all my problems. I’m now a business owner. I work from home and I get to spend every day with my daughter.”
